Which of the sentences below best expresses the essential information in the highlighted sentence in the passage? Incorrect choices change the meaning in important ways or leave out essential information.
A Hawks, falcons, and eagles prefer to hunt along ridge lines, where wind turbines can kill large numbers of migratory birds.
B Wind turbines occasionally cause migratory birds to change their flight patterns and therefore may interfere with the areas where birds of prey prefer to hunt.
C Some of the best locations for large wind farms are places that may cause problems for migrating birds and birds of prey.
D Large wind farms in certain areas kill hawks, falcons, and eagles and thus might create a more ideal path for the flight of migratory birds.
首先我们注意到原文有个and，我们就知道原文的逻辑是并列。而且and前后的主语都是large wind farms。然后我们再去看选项，我们把逻辑错误的选项排除。B和D选项里面分别都有一个多余的因果逻辑词，therefore和thus。因为和原文的并列逻辑矛盾，所以我们排除它们。我们再看看A选项，我们发现虽然它在提到了原文中的migratory bird和prey bird，但是原文并没有提到杀死了migratory bird和会杀死prey bird。所以最后我们只能选择C。
